"Pic du Midi de Bigorre" is located in the Hautes Pyrénées district at an altitude of 2877 meters (9440 feet). It is famous for hosting an a astronomical observatory and a television relay.
A few years ago, an helicopter landing pad was available on the site. It will be present on the scene.
You may discover the observatory on Gilles Vidal's superb website : Pic du Midi virtual visit
After nearly 1200 hours of modeling, the Observatoire du Pic du Midi de Bigorre is nearing completion. I am pleased to present the latest screenshots.
The mixing of textures on top of the mountain is not what I had hoped to achieve, it requires a very complex work. So I preferred this solution to avoiding a sharp transition continuity blur to bring close to reality.
The FS9 version will be available shortly. For FSX, a few edits are still needed to fit this version.
